‘Log Horizon’ is a fantasy science-fiction anime series based on a novel published on April 13, 2010, and several volumes of manga (comics originated in Japan) series. The popular anime is written and illustrated by Kazuhiro Hara, which premiered three years ago on October 5, 2013, leaving its audience by surprise. It took a year for Log Horizon to come out with the second season that aired on October 4, 2014, making the fans obsessed about the anime series. Six years down the line, when fans are yet to begin disliking the anime series, Log Horizon announced a comeback of the series in 2020. But, given the pandemic situation, the release date for season 3 is now pushed until next year. The production got delayed because of obvious reasons for COVID-19. Anyways, the excitement among the fans cannot go unnoticed, as news seems too good to be true.
The gap between seasons 2 and 3 have been caused mainly for two reasons. First, the author of the light novel Mamare Touno was charged with tax evasion in 2015 because of which he couldn’t work on the anime. And the second reason is that the series had caught up with the light novel by season 2. So there was no content available for another season at all.
Do We Have an English Version of ‘Log Horizon’ Series?
Yes, of course. All the episodes of Log Horizon have been dubbed into English and are available on Crunchyroll for people who want to watch the anime in the language. Also, if you don’t want to watch a dubbed version, but would prefer it in Japanese with English subtitles, then you can surely log on to the Hulu network.
